Hi doctor,

I suffer from seasonal allergy every year. It starts from the month of August till December for the past 15 years. When the season changes, I get running nose, excessive sneezing and itchy watery eyes. I also have an intolerable itching in the eyelids and in the corners of the eye. I am using Flomist nasal spray and Cetirizine tablets for the nose. I am not able to concentrate on my work due to my eye allergy. I also used I-Kul eye drops and other eye drops, but no improvement. Please suggest some anti-allergic eye drops.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • The allergic eye can be treated with eye drops such as Olopatadine once a day or twice if severe. This can be used for a long term relief.
  • For an acute exacerbation, use Loteprednol eye drops two hours or as frequently as required when you have an itch.
  • If it is a very serious complication, you can use Predmet eye drops (Prednisolone acetate), as and when required.
  • I advice you cold compression and avoid rubbing your eyes.
  • As it does not have a permanent cure, use drops whenever you have symptoms. Continue with the same medications for nose and throat allergy as it will also benefit the eyes.
